The complete San Fermín package gives you the full version of the first days of San Fermin. Take part in our vibrant festival and experience the intensity from our top-end locations. The Chupinazo, or opening ceremony, on the 6th of July is simply phenomenal and it all begins in the Plaza Consistorial. It’s the biggest event of San Fermin, which you will watch from a second floor location with 8 superb balconies overlooking the Plaza.
Our event includes unbeatable views of the electric atmosphere below, a VIP buffet brunch with drinks galore, English speaking hosts, and a professional photographer to capture the moment with friends and family. Then rise and shine on the 7th to watch the Running of the Bulls from low to middle level balconies. In the afternoon watch a bullfight from a premium location.
This package also includes a gastronomy walking tour that takes you into local Pamplona and the hidden corners of our fabulous festival. Begin San Fermin right with our welcome gift – an NST white shirt, red bandana (pañuelo) and take-home souvenir.

The San Fermin Bullfights
The bullfight in San Fermin is unlike any spectacle you are likely to see elsewhere in the world. It is far from a traditional bullfight where the audience watches the drama with intense, almost silent attention. The bullfights during San Fermin are more lively and unique. San Fermín Taurine events are offered in packages or can be booked individually. Our guided event includes a taurine expert and gastronomy pack with traditional sandwiches and drinks on ice.
The bullfight on horse, or rejoneo,is on the 6th. The rejoneobullfight is where the bullfighters are on horseback fighting bulls weighing over 500 kilos. The classic bullfight is from the 7th to the 14th. This is the typical bullfight with the torero on foot fighting a bull that weighs from 500 kilos to as much as 700 kilos.
Time Schedule: 18:00 – 21:00
- Guided or self-guided
- Bullfight tickets
